The transit of Paris on the Seine, the loop of the Marne (from Maisons-Alfort as far as the port of Bonneuil), the Marne (and the canals of Chelles and Chalifert), the Canal alongside the Marne, the canal from the Aisne to the Marne (from Condé-sur-Marne as far as Reims).

The Romans called this placid river "the Matron". Pretty valley, charming villages. The champagne vineyards nibble at the hills, competing with the woods.At the approach to the Paris region, several little canals shortcut the river's final loops (Chalifert, Chelles and the Joinville tunnel). The countryside changes, but the suburbs on the way still reserve some pleasant surprises.

Then the Marne joins the Seine between Charenton and Alfortville just before reaching the capital, where the transit of Paris by boat is a marvel. But a marvel that requires great attention from the pilot, as well as the inland waterways boating license.

Upstream, from Épernay, the Marne is no longer navigable and it is its lateral canal that accompanies it to meet the river at Vitry-le-François. The long straight channels are a little monotonous to navigate, but the Champagne region is beautiful…

At Condé-sur-Marne, navigators can enter the canal from the Aisne to the Marne, which will take them as far as Reims, the capital of the Champagne Region and of champagne. This is the most beautiful channel of this junction canal: two fine copings made of bevelled stone frame the sections, the sides of which are prettily wooded.

NOTE : The detailed plans of Lagny, Meaux, Château-Thierry, Epernay, Châlons-en-Champagne, Vitry-le-François and Reims allow you to quickly locate yourself in the towns along the way.
